Sunny San Diego

My cousin-in-law Laurie is getting married in Long Beach tomorrow, so Yelena and I flew down to SD this afternoon.  It was nice to see the in-laws again (no really, it was!) and the weather was gorgeous (and they said it would rain!).

I was going to talk about some fun stories from the DA's office but I'm too tired now.  I think I'm going to just turn in.  The good news: I get to take a ton of pictures tomorrow!  Finally I'll have something new to put on the web site!

New hat! Certification!

I got suckered into buying a $50 hat. I've been wanting to make the move to fedoras for a while now so I went for it. It's actually not a fedora; it's a "hard felt." A quality fedora is at least two times as expensive (you can go up to $500 for a real quality hat). Anyway, this will do for now. What do you think? Like it? Hate it? Leave me a comment.

Microsoft has made a great product.

Never thought I'd actually say that.  But they have.  It's called Word.

This is your brain on law school.

Any questions?

It's 3:20 am and I just finished a rough rough draft of my moot court brief. It's still missing a lot of stuff, I'll have a lot of details to fill in tomorrow. But the basic framework is there, and that's the most important part. I've been working on this thing for the last 16 hours. About an hour ago I realized I was arguing in the wrong direction and had to make a logical about-face. Anyway, the hard part is done. Tomorrow I can finish it up.

Webcams are awesome!

My mom just called me from Hawaii. She was walking down a beach and noticed that it has a webcam, so I looked it up online. I was able to see and talk to my mom in realtime even though she's halfway around the world. Awesome.

Here she is

"Do something to make the bitter waters sweet."

Traditional Jewish greeting, meaning "May you have a peaceful and fulfilling Sabbath."  (Shalom is the Jewish word for peace, but it comes from the root "shalem," which means whole, complete, or fulfilled.)

Went to temple this morning.  Hadn't been in a while, it was nice to be back.  Ran into Prof. Marcia Cohen, who happens to be a teacher at Hastings (I learned torts and FDA law from her).  Also got to say Kadish (the mourner's prayer) for my grandfather.

Hello world!

My new website is up and running! The photo gallery is still pretty sparse, at least compared to the old one. But it's harder to upload now; it'll probably take a week until all my photos are up. If there's something you want to see, let me know!
